In a medical malpractice case, our St. Louis Medical Malpractice Lawyer helps
prove that the medical provider did not meet the applicable standard of care in your
or your loved one's particular case in order to recover monetary damages. Doctors,
dentists and other medical specialists, including hospitals and surgical physicians,
have an obligation to conduct themselves professionally and not harm their patients.
When they make mistakes, patients in their care can be seriously injured. Unfortunately,
such errors are often avoidable and result from medical professionals who are
inadequately trained or who are just too busy to be thorough. If this is the case, you
need an aggressive and experienced St. Louis Medical Malpractice Attorney to help you.
The Gogel Law Firm'sMedical Malpractice Attorney in St. Louis focuses solely on protecting the rights of injured people. Our St. Louis Medical Malpractice Lawyer, experts, and staff are focused on helping injured people obtain the medical and financial compensation that will help them get back to a normal life.
Medical errors happen in a number of ways and in all phases of patient care. For example:
Emergency room errors can occur when doctors and staff fail to properly diagnose injuries or diseases.
Nurses or pharmacists may inadvertently provide incorrect medication or fail to provide the proper dosage.
Surgeons may make errors that cause serious, and sometimes fatal, injuries.
Doctors sometimes fail to provide the proper care for a patient's condition, even though they have properly diagnosed the condition.
A bad or undesired result doesn't automatically mean that there was medical malpractice.
An experienced St. Louis Medical Malpractice Attorney can let you know if a
doctor or hospital can be liable for medical malpractice. In order to analyze the case
properly, a St. Louis Medical Malpractice Lawyer needs to determine whether
something was done which should not have been done, whether a procedure was performed
improperly, or whether something that was medically necessary was not done. Common
instances of medical malpractice include wrong-site surgery, objects left inside patients,
medication errors, and failure to diagnose a time sensitive illness before it is too late.
Moreover, medical malpractice that causes a death may actually be a Wrongful Death case, which could extend the statute of limitations. We have provided information about the difference between Medical Malpractice and Wrongful Death on our blog.
